Oral Immunotherapy (OIT) is a treatment for food allergies. The goal of OIT treatment is to reach the point where patients can safely consume foods that once threatened their health.
During OIT immunotherapy treatment, a very small amount of the thing you are allergic to is given to you by mouth. OIT trains your body to tolerate the allergen. Our OIT program provides a long term solution for food allergic patients. It takes about 6 to 12 months to complete OIT procedures.
Our food OIT has been proven to be 85% successful. Severe reactions to OIT are rare and occur in less than 10% of our OIT patients. OIT should work for any type of food allergy.
The Woodlands Allergy Center is one of the few OIT clinics in the nation to deliver oral immunotherapy to foods. Our goal is to treat and substantially improve the quality of life of food allergic children and adults.
We currently have established existing OIT protocols for the following food allergy treatments.
